BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say a fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer is barricaded in a cabin in the Southern California mountains.

Someone in the Big Bear Lake area reported a stolen vehicle Tuesday and described the suspect as looking very similar to Christopher Dorner.

The vehicle was found and the person ran into the forest and barricaded himself inside a cabin.

Authorities say a short time later there was an exchange of gunfire between law enforcement and the suspect.

Two law enforcement officers are being airlifted to a local hospital with unknown injuries.
